Hi Ilil

I've confirmed with our localization team and unfortunately, we don't support RtL (right to left) languages right now. Thanks!

this is unbelievable, as hebrew was totally supported until now. for me, and other users, millions i guess, as arabic and thai may also be effected, for ALL of us this means acutally losing all our dropbox data. I have more than a thousand files, all unreachable. CRAZY!!!!!!!!

just found out a possible solution: it happened after upgrading to windows 10. so I found out this problem exists in Chrome, but is OK in Microsoft Edge. 

well' at least there is a solution, but still, shouldn't happen.

I can confirm this

So Dropbox simply don't have the site setup correctly and its not that "they don't support"

Geez...get your act together.

These 5 steps fix Hebrew font rendering in Dropbox and other sites (e.g., Yahoo):

1. Open a new Chrome tab (CTRL-T).

2. In the address bar type "about:flags"

3. Look for a flag named "DirectWrite" (possibly named "Disable DirectWrite").

4. Click the "Enable" link.

5. Click the "Relaunch now" button that appeared at the bottom of the screen to relaunch Chrome.

Good luck.
